  • No more that 72 hours before arrival: Active COVID-19 infection diagnostic test with certificate showing a negative result.
  • If you come from a high risk country, it will be mandatory, in order to enter Spain, to present a test with a NEGATIVE PCR result (RT-PCR of COVID-19), carried out within 72 hours prior to your arrival in Spain.
  • If you do not come from a high risk country, or visit from Spain or the Balearic Islands, you will have to present a certificate with a negative result, which can be the PCR (RT-PCR of COVID-19) or the rapid antigen detection tests, to access any tourist accommodation in the archipelago. This is presented during check-in at the tourist accommodation of your choice. However, to guarantee the safety of tourists and residents, and given the fact that in the Canary Islands we have managed to significantly lower the rate of infections, we recommend and appreciate that you perform at least one antigen test before traveling.
  • If you come from outside the national territory, within the 48 hours before your arrival in Spain, you must complete a public health form electronically through SPAIN TRAVEL HEALTH-SpTH to obtain your personal QR code. Remember that it is essential to fill out a separate form for each trip and person travelling.
  • In all cases, it is essential to check the conditions of your operator or airline before traveling to the Canary Islands.

Canary Islands residents do not need to provide a negative test certificate when staying ion touristic establishments in the Canary Islands. All they need to do is sign a document stating that they have not left the Autonomous Community of the Canary Islands in the 15 days prior to their arrival to the establishment and that they have been free of symptoms compatible with COVID-19 during the same period.

The Government of the Canary Islands has provided a model of the document to sign that can be downloaded here.
